Mark your calendars for Saturday, November 5th from 9 am until 2 pm for the Bread and Butter Stream Cleanup in conjunction with Better Waterways! We will be targeting the area of the stream beginning being Danville Square Shopping Center moving toward Bear Creek! Volunteers of all ages and abilities are needed! Help us remove the trash before it flows into Back River, the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean! Every piece of trash removed is a small victory to be celebrated!
We run our cleanups as a family event with plenty of ways for volunteers to participate. We welcome every type of person of every ability level to contribute and assist with the cleanup. Though it is true we will need people to dig out shopping carts and haul trash to the dumpsters, we need people to run water, food, tools, and trash bags (both empty and full) to individuals in the creek. People to sort recyclables from the debris removed. People will be needed to help at registration, setup food and snacks as well as many other less strenuous activities. We are also authorized to sign-off on Community Service and Service Learning Hours for students. The more people we have, the easier the work will be for everyone. We will provide lunch and snacks as well as gloves. A limited number of tools are available for sign-out, but suggest bringing your own if you have them.
We are also looking for photographer/videographer volunteers to help us document our cleanup as well.
We will meet behind Palm Beach Tan (1623 Merritt Boulevard, Dundalk, MD 21222). Registration will open at 8:00 am and we will enter the stream at 9:00 am after a brief orientation!
